Our research team are developing a questionnaire to measure thoughts about suicide and nonsuicidal self-injury. Understanding these thoughts may help us to develop more effective treatments and improve quality of life.
We are looking for adults (18 years+) who are willing to complete the first version of the questionnaire. Participants will be asked to say how much they agree or disagree with each thought. To be eligible to take part, you must have thought about or engaged in suicide or nonsuicidal self-injury at some point in your lifetime. Participation is voluntary, completely anonymous, and will be online. The study has received full ethical approval from the University of Stirling. Participants will be entered into a prize draw to win one of five £100 Amazon vouchers. Participating will take about 45 minutes. Please only take part if you are confident that you can complete the entire study.
